Video: The Colorbox at Alchemeyez
Body Navigating a World of Color Relationships
Color is seldom seen, if ever, as it really is. The intention of this art project is that you will see more color (and see it better) by becoming a part of the Colorbox experience.
From a distance, a glowing box changes colors. Getting closer, a small doorway beckons you inside. Once inside, without shadows, immersed in changing color and light, you discover that body movement affects the visual displays around you.
For those outside the box, they see, but do not experience the same thing you do. Inside the box, unseen, you create the visual experience around you. If you are outside the box, you can choose to cast a shadow on the box… or step inside.
Step inside and you are veiled except for the projections you create. It’s a new way of experiencing color: The Laws of Color are in your Hands!
Beyond themes like “Shadow and Projection” exists the realm of art that supersedes a plan; collaboration. By giving you control of the room, you experience viscerally, how your visual perception is hardwired to accentuate contrast. And in doing so, you complete the art.
